Glacier surge is an important causer of mountain hazards. A complete surge-type glacier inventory can greatly facilitate the assessment of glacier-related hazards. Here we present a new surge-type glacier inventory across High Mountain Asia (HMA) from multiple DEMs. The inventory has incorporated 1015 surge-type glaciers during 1970s–2010s. Our result demonstrated a more widespread surge behavior in HMA, and a potential relationship between the surge frequency and regional mass balance.
